A few weeks ago I took my children to a local strawberry farm. And it’s possible that I spent close to $20 on strawberries. Or not. Or maybe so. It was worth every penny and I even think we saved some pennies as they ate a few strawberries as they picked. Just a few (or […]
Some of my favorite things during the Spring time in the South are: walking barefoot outside, the choir of bugs at night, rainy afternoons, fresh produce and eating outside. When I told you about Humble Roots farm in my last post with that beautiful Kohlrabi, I wanted so badly to go ahead and share this […]
Last week I visited one of our local farmer’s markets. It’s located on the grounds of an old plantation that’s been turned into a sight-seeing and locale for many events. And with all of the local farmers and artists, it was even more magical. Spring, in our little Southern town, means that Azaleas decorate most […]
you know what’s good about making your own ice cream? everything, that’s what. it’s usually cheaper, tastier, and prettier. and for goodness’ sakes, you can actually SEE what is in the thing that you’re about to ingest. or better yet, what your children are about to ingest. if you are what you eat, then lately […]

these cookies are little bites of ginger goodness. they’re a satisfying sweet treat, minus processed sugars that give you that awful rise and fall in blood sugar. and the bonus is that they’re filled with good protein.
i’ve wanted something to dip my veggies in for quite a while. i happened to have tahini in my fridge from a previous dip recipe i’d tried and not fully enjoyed. but tahini doesn’t do me any good just sitting on the shelf of my refrigerator staring at me.
remember when i taught you how to make coconut butter? now, before i give you the recipes for these bad boys, you need to go cut up a really tart granny smith apple. dunk it in your freshly made coconut butter. isn’t that just the most delicious combo?!
